Recycled Magazine Collage Art

Blank walls need art (in my opinion) so I've been making art on the cheap over the last few months to add to the blank wall space in our new home.
Simple to make art from recycled magazines and junk mail

My latest effort is this super easy collage made from old magazines and junk mail. I made it to go with the yellow table and mirror in our hall and, as I already had the frame, it was completely free! 
The story of little yellow table that started the whole "yellow" thing is here:
Today I'm over at The Pinning Mama sharing the full instructions to make this simple, cheap, recycled artwork. It's another project that has almost endless variations in terms of colour and style.

  4. What a great project and I love you can pretty much do any colour or theme. I'm thinking this would be great as a Christmas theme for my house. Different images I love of Christmas! :)
